The former Spurs star celebrated his first goal since moving to San Siro in January along with his trainer expects him to get even better with time.
Christian Eriksen is yet to achieve peak physical condition after connecting Inter from Tottenham, according to head coach Antonio Conte.
Eriksen, who signed to the Serie A club in January, scored his first goal for Inter in Thursday’s 2-0 Europa League last-32 win off at Ludogorets.
The Denmark international opened the scoring with a nice strike and hit the crossbar with a strong drive before Romelu Lukaku’s late penalty put the Nerazzurri in full control before next week’s second leg in Milan.
However, Conte feels there’s a whole lot more to come from Eriksen.
“I am happy for him, the goal always gives assurance,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia after Inter bounced back from consecutive domestic beats in Bulgaria.
“Christian just needs to work to discover the appropriate physical condition, to obtain the brilliance of his finest moments at Tottenham.
“He can do even more than what he showed us now, but we are extremely happy because we know what he can give us.”
Inter were without goalkeeper Samir Handanovic, though deputy Daniele Padelli was completely untested as Ludogorets mustered just one shot.
“It is a scenario that we track day by day,” Conte said of Handanovic, with a hand injury.
“We’ve got confidence in Daniele Padelli, and if he is ready to resume his place, he will. Until then, we continue with Padelli.”
Inter began the final Serie A weekend on peak of the table, but tumbled to third following Juventus recovered the summit with a 2-0 win over Brescia and Lazio leapfrogged the Nerazzurri by beating Conte’s guys 2-1.
They’ll be hoping to regain momentum in the Scudetto race on Sunday, when Sampdoria see San Siro.
